At the end of 12th EDT lesson, your log book will be stamped & your EDT lesson will be logged in the RSA Portal. As the EDT lesson 12th can be challenging & that you are struggling with lesson it; maybe more practice with an ADI, your sponsor, or both would be advisable.

((PS): if you have no car to practice or that you cannot have another driving lesson before your next EDT, maybe you should consider having  your EDT lessons close from one to another, in order to pick up driving skills quickly. When you accomplished your 12 EDTs, make sure that they are all logged in the RSA portal. If you have some lesson which are not logged in, the RSA will not provide you with a date for your Driving Test.
